Elevate Life Church: No. 6 Fastest-Growing Church, 2017

“At Elevate Life Church, we lead people who are far from Christ to encounter God, embrace others and elevate their world. This means everything our church does is aimed at helping people experience God in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; build life-giving relationships and authentic community; and discover and develop their God-given purpose that makes a difference in the world.

“We believe that one of the most important aspects of building your faith in God is your involvement in the community. We are the church, and it was God’s will that we take an active role in our lives and the lives of those around us. We launched Elevate Leadership Academy (ELA), a comprehensive leadership-development experience that offers fully accredited degrees through Northwest University. ELA is uniquely designed with a balance of academic rigor, student support and real-life application.”
